FG Commissions 450 Metric Tons Cassava Processing Plant In Rivers by oshozondii: 6:13pm On May 27
The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Alhaji Sabo Nanono, has commissioned the cassava plant at Afam in Oyigbo Local Government Area of Rivers State.

He said the processing plant will address the challenges of value addition of the crop in the value chain sub sector.

Speaking during the commissioning on Thursday, Nanono, noted that the plant will also promote the adoption and use of 10% high quality cassava flour (HQCF) in bread and confectionery business, so as to reduce wheat importation and conserve foreign exchange earnings to meet other needs.

The minister said “Rivers State is among the Top 5 Cassava producing states. It is therefore of necessity and thoughtful on the part of government that cares for its farmers to embark on project of this nature that will enhance value addition and guarantee employment to the people.

“This factory when it is fully operational will be fed with output from 3,000 farmers within the farming communities as well as other farmers far and wide from neighbouring communities.”

He said “the processing plant will also cultivate thousands of hectares of Cassava to ensure uninterrupted supplies of raw materials. In all these arrangements, massive jobs will be created and over 20,000 farm families will earn income for enhanced livelihood and improved standard of living.

“This milestone achievement of the government of Rivers State will promote export substitution, job creation, economic diversification as well as food and nutrition security.

“This is in tandem with the agricultural policy put in place by the present Federal Government poised to build agribusiness ecosystem that will address the challenges in the agricultural sector in partnership with all stakeholders.”

He emphasized that the outcome of the continued use of this processing plant will lead to increased incomes, livelihood, ensure healthy cassava food processing activities and serve as a new page to achieve the desired result in the 10% cassava flour inclusion policy as well as food and nutrition security.

The minister commended the activities of Rivers State Government under the leadership of Governor Nyesom Wike, who has constructed the cassava plant as a contribution toward ensuring food security and value addition in the country.

In his remarks, Governor Wike stated that “the primary focus of his administration is to diversify the economy of the state from oil and gas to agricultural development by providing financial support and inputs to the smallholder farmers in the state.

The governor assured the people that state government would provide financial grants, seeds and inputs to the cassava smallholder farmers which would increase production, create more jobs and boost revenue.

In his goodwill message, the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, said that the CBN is committed to provide financially assist grants that would fast track growth in the Agricultural sector, which is in line with President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

What happened to all the strides recorded under Adesina Akinwunmi?
APC is like 10 steps back in some area. They wanted to channel that energy towards rice by all means just to score some cheap points politically. See where it has gotten us today. We are still not self sufficient in rice, whereas we were self sufficient in cassava under PDP and even started using it for bread production.

Nigerian leaders and moribund projects are like 5&6.
How many of government initiated or government own projects in agriculture, manufacturing, health or even banking and finance are still existing today in spite of the heavy investments into them? The next Governor will just ignore the project and that will be the end.

The people in this factory, are they going to be civil servants or what?

Obasanjo farms is still going strong 41 years after take off. Where are all the other state and federal government projects, farms, plants, "windmill"....... Call it whatever you want kiss

These governors and the professional elites are actually the ones ruining this country. They are only interested in giving out contracts at the detriment of the people. By the time you hear how much was used to set up this project and how many civil servants travelled abroad to source for the "equipments"? You will want to sit on the floor!

Our problem is continuity. The people in government think it is about them and their legacy, but fail to realize it is not their money they are using to execute projects. So you see them detracting from previous projects so that the credits doesn't go to the previous administrations.

The credit is to the law abiding citizens who work hard and pay taxes, so government could work for them.

We need to stop praising government for doing exactly what we give them money to do.

Good one by Nyesom Wike.
But then, I smell a rodent.
An APC minister commissioning a project in a PDP state?
Not just any State but Wike's Rivers State?
And even praising Wike?
Ok...
I may be wrong but I have a feeling that there's something about Wike and the APC that we'll get to understand very soon.
It's just a thought though.
